From Ein Jahir to Ein Fusail
Distance and Time: 5.0km / 3 – 4 hours
Grade: Moderate. Light scrambling. Rocky, uneven terrain.
The spring of Ein Jahir, near the start of this hike, is unknown to almost everybody except the Bedouin who come here to water their flocks. From the spring the path winds down to the valley floor and follows the rocky streambed to the spring at Ain Fusail. Again, the trail involves some light scrambling down the eroded watercourse.
The hike is no more than five kilometers, but this must be one of the best walks in Palestine for observing birds and wildlife. There are gazelle and ibex here, as well as hyrax and desert foxes. The Long Legged Buzzard, the Snake Eagle, and the Lesser Kestrel all nest in the cliffs above the valley. The whole valley feels quiet and remote.
